Register for Paratransit
There are five types of registrations. People registering for Paratransit must meet the following eligibility criteria:
|Permanent||A permanent registration is grated if a person required the continuous use of Paratransit and is a Regina resident. If Paratransit is not used in an 18 month period, the permanent registration will be deactivated and you will need to re-register.|
|Temporary||A temporary registration is granted if the person is temporarily disabled (e.g., broken leg or hip replacement surgery) and unable to use fixed route transit for a limited time period. Temporary registrations can be extended if required.|
|Winter||Winter registrations are for people who only require Paratransit in the winter and are issued from November 1 until March 31 of each year.|
|Visitor||Paratransit is available for people visiting Regina. You must provide a city address as a pick-up location. A visitor's registration does not expire and is valid every time you visit Regina.|
|Conditional||A conditional registration allows people to travel on Paratransit on certain times of the day and under certain conditions. (e.g., after dark)|
